The Butterfly Maiden came to me this morning as a crystal clear messenger of change. She sails in on a warm breeze with a few other like minded messengers of late. I am one to pay attention to the signs and synchronicity of life. So today I am writing about our good friend, the butterfly.
Of course, this time of year the butterfly abounds in nature. Spring is morphing into summer and with all this fertile energy comes transformation. This card, Butterfly Maiden, signifies a period of celebration over the “death” of old habits, relationships and objects. She asks us to shift our focus onto the future and to celebrate the new higher vibration experiences that await us. Now that we have made some room from clearing out our closets, inboxes and contact lists – embrace the new arrivals!!
The butterfly encourages us to to lighten up and have more fun. This is another message with a recurring pattern.
Other strong butterfly messages have come my way of late. I recently shared a post on this blog, Blessings of a Dragonfly, which was quite popular. It garnered the most interesting comments and feedback in the history of my blogging career. I delved into the world of spirit and totem animals and was able to learn about a few new ones thanks to my blogosphere posse including the praying mantis, deer and hummingbird.
Kansen Sakura wrote this in my comments about butterflies, “Someone told me years ago, during my Woodstock days, that the small white/yellow butterflies were the spirits of our loved ones following us and reminding us of how we were loved and that they were always with us. My grandmother would go outside to the garden and soon, would have the little ones swirling about her, resting on her hair and clothes. My father as well.”
These little butterflies started showing up for me shortly after my own father passed away, so this comment touched my heart and soul deeply.
Recently, fellow blogger, Anarette wrote a beautiful post about butterflies, inspired in part by a comment I made on her blog about starting a movement to plant milkweed for the monarch’s. The monarch butterfly is in trouble. Their numbers are falling dramatically. Monarchs only lay there eggs on one species of plant, the Milkweed. If you can, please plant some seeds today!! To learn more about how you can help the monarch, here is a link to her blog post that has several resources to help.
Next time you see a butterfly take a moment to enjoy it, smile and listen to your inner guidance. The Butterfly Maiden card is from Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue.
Peace, grace and love! Lisa
